Prezi has got to be one of THE coolest free online services I have stumbled upon lately.
Prezi is a web-based presentation application and storytelling tool that uses a single canvas instead of traditional slides. Text, images, videos and other presentation objects are placed on the infinite canvas and grouped together in frames. The canvas allows users to create non-linear presentations, where they can zoom in and out of a visual map. A path through different objects and frames can be defined, representing the order of the information to be presented. The presentation can be developed in a browser window, then downloaded so that an internet connection is not needed when showing the presentation.
Prezi uses the freemium model. Customers who use the free Prezi Public license must publish their work on the [Prezi site]. Customers who pay for a Prezi Enjoy or Prezi Pro license can create and share private Prezis. Prezi also offers a special education license for students and educators.
Prezi is so unique that you actually have to see a real Prezi presentation in action.
View the example below. Please view it fullscreen to appreciate it completely.
Although it looks a little tacky at first because of the red lips, it is worth a look!
Please go to the Getting started page to learn how to use Prezi.
You can create your own Prezi and embed it (or any other Prezi) in a wordpress.com blog. All you have to do is modify the Flash embed code they give you. The following post will help you learn how to do that.
